Porsche Taycan event in 5 minutes

– [Translator] We are very
happy to have you here for the presentation
of the Porsche Taycan. With the Taycan, it’s the first full electric sports car, we present. – In this car, we see the DNA of the 918 Spyder super sports car and the 919 Hybrid, our
three time winner of Leman. Let’s have a look at the key facts. Top drag speeds, up to
260 Kilometers per hour, consistently over a long period. Zero to 100 in just 2.8 seconds. Zero to 200, amazing 9.8 seconds, and not only once or twice,
but many times in a row with no loss of power. The overall boost
function in Launch Control provides a peak power
of up to 560 kilowatts, which equals 761 PS in
the combustion world. And the maximum torque of the Taycan, is up to incredible 1050 Newton meters. It has proven as much on the
Nurburgring, Nordschleife, where it achieved a sensational lap time of seven minutes 42 seconds only. But there’s much more it can
do namely, long distances. WLTP, the Taycan achieves a
range of up to 450 kilometers. It can charge with a peak
power of 270 kilowatts. This means, under ideal circumstances, it takes just five minutes to be ready for another 100 kilometers of range. The Taycan is the first
series production car based on an 800 volt system. In addition to that, we have developed a two-speed transmission
for the rear axle. The first gear ensures
maximum takeoff performance while the second offers high speeds and accelerations reserves as
you expected in a sports car. We have succeeded in an
outstanding drag coefficient of only .22, without any
compromising on the design, which you will see later. Systems like electric
active role stabilization, three chamber air suspension and rear axle steering are available. The Taycan also has best in
class regenerative power, up to 265 kilowatts,
only by using one pedal, the brake pedal. – The most important factor in
the beginning the proportions and the Taycan definitely
redefines that in the segment, proportions that fit
Porsche with the sporting with to heat ratio. The unique layout of the
batteries in the chassis makes this form possible. As a result, the rear passenger seat even lower than expected
and the driver position is very similar to that in the 911. But now let us have a look at the front. We no longer need more
space for combustion engine, therefore, we could lower the bonnet. Combined with extremely
pronounced front fenders, we can emphasize the
topography of the front end, which is typical for Porsche. Characteristic on the front
are the new headlights with their progressive
and very slim graphic. The headlights shape has a floating object and combines itself with
a functional air carbon. This optimizes the aerodynamics
and increases its range. Two further important
features in side view are the fast looping roof-line and the side window graphic
which is inspired by the 911. In the interior to challenge
to connect heritage and future of the brand was even greater. The driver display, with its
new freestanding curve design, emphasize the deform
and ensures everything of importance is in a view. The clean and minimalistic
design of the dash panelist is supported by a
seamlessly integrated center display, an optional
front passenger display and a new innovative air vents. The sloping center console
combined with a modern sports seats emphasize
the feeling were low and very sporty sitting position. The material and color
concept make it possible to tailor individual features from traditional through modern. Classic leather is available as well as a sustainable tanned leather and for a first time in a Porsche, we offer completely leather free trim. – It is different from
anything else we have created in more than 70 years of Porsche sports. 100% electric. 100% Porsche.
